A client for Sensor Observation Services (SOS, see < https://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/sos>) as specified by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). With the package users can retrieve (meta)data from SOS instances and interactively create requests for near real-time observation data based on the available sensors, phenomena, observations etc. using thematic, temporal, and spatial filtering.
Changes in sos4R Version 0.2-11 - 2013-05-14
o FIXED line lengths of \example and \usage sections in .Rd files
o FIXED usage of .find.packages which is deprecated for compatibility with R 3.0.0
o CHANGED minimum R version to 2.15.0 since older ones will not be tested anymore
Changes in sos4R Version 0.2-10 - 2012-11-19
o ADDED function sosCapabilitiesUrl to generate a capabilities request URL in KVP encoding to include in Documentation, e.g. Sweave
o ADDED rgdal to suggests list in DESCRIPTION
o FIXED pegel demo, now using the actual PegelOnline web service
o FIXED a NOTE about partial argument match in getObservation,SOS_1.0.0 for 'offering' to 'offeringId': had to use the correct name offeringId when calling .getObservation_1.0.0(...)
o EXTENDED documentation: added reference to cheat sheet in Vignette
Changes in sos4R Version 0.2-9 - 2012-08-08
o ADDED error handling for plotting methods so that plot(sos) does not break if one offering cannot be coerced to spatial
o ADDED 'ug/m3' and 'http://www.opengis.net/def/property/OGC/0/FeatureOfInterest' to known list of fields > converted with sosConvertDouble and sosConvertString respectively
o FIXED weathersos demo
o MOVED vignette to now suggested directory vignettes/, see http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-exts.html#Writing-package-vignettes
o CHANGED DESCRIPTION file: moved xtable to Suggests - section, set ByteCompile: TRUE, added [email protected] (http://journal.r-project.org/archive/2012-1/RJournal_2012-1_Hornik~et~al.pdf), changed minumum R version to 2.14.0
o UPDATED cheat sheet and vignette: added link to Bugzilla
o ADDED minor improvements for sensor description parsing and coecion: sosCoordinates(SensorML) tries to handle 'easting'/'northing', 'longitude'/'latitude', and 'elevation'/'altitude' coordinates and subsequently plotting does not break if 'x'/'y' are not given.
o ADDED function to reset the parsers to default: sos <- SosResetParsingFunctions(sos)
Changes in sos4R Version 0.2-7 - 2011-12-02
o ADDED describeSensor can now handle a character vector of procedures, will return a list with the sensor descriptions
o ADDED note in verbose mode about multiple content types in .getObservation_1.0.0

o Change in encodeXML: Now a specific function for objects of class POSIXt exists so that only the encoding of time can be overridden by users, this is demonstrated in demo("southesk") and documented in the vignette.

o CHANGED way of building the package to see if NOTEs about uncompacted PDFs can be fixed by the according option in R CMD build
